what we've done, judge us on what we've tried to repeal. the dozens of votes to repeal obama care, jobs bills, things are languishing, not only majority of americans want, majority of voters want. look, if they are going to refashion themselves, they need a new leader latino lesbian under 25. but there aren't any republican party and that's the problem. >> you've got to ask yourself, too, i'm trying to think of a sports metaphor, like having a case of the chickenpox that mask your sprained ankle. the affordable care act provided the smoke screen so they don't have to deal with the instructial problems within the party. republicans made zero progress reaching out to any demographic groups, women, young people, latino, autopsy, the famous rans priebus document they have to stay alive for that great tea party rally in the sky. >> you're seeing a conflict between the fact the party wants durable majorities and beholden to shrinking monochromatic base. i think it would be a real conservative to replace boehner at some point, could wake up to the fact not about insufficient conservatism

. this morning president obama announce add new plan to triple the federal government's use of renewable energy by 20% by the year 2020. as one anonymous official told "new york times" every day there will be something coming out of the white house. that sounds so sort of pllike foreboding. we hope it's something good. you see in the script i said this was return to the themes that got him elected. you sound like you would beg to differ in the first earlier discussion we had. i agree with e.j. dionne. he's making a big bet. it is still the economy, stupid. if you look at the gallop poll, 46% of the country see the economy as the most important issue, 96% say health care. >> look at the economic numbers out today. the first unemployment claims in a very long time, under 300,000. you had currently quarterly gdp far exceeding analyst expectations. you have a very good story to tell comparatively right now on the economy. the one thing that's been a drag on that is the obama care debate of the president clearly has to put a line, a straight line between where he is right now and th

to get him involved. the college didn't divest but a new leader inspired by nelson mandela was reborn. as president obama later said in his memoir, i noticed people had begun to listen to my opinion. it was a discovery that made me hungry for words. the president and first lady will travel to africa next week to pay their respects. joining us from washington, among our many other guests, austin, not washington, is msnbc's very own chris matthews. chris, we have a whole panel in new york. i want to go to you first. you spoke with the president yesterday. there's a lot of talk about nelson mandela's legacy but i want to start with the man himself. nelson mandela was not just a leader of south africa, he was a global visionary. you spent time in south africa. i wonder as a man interested in struggles of democracy and repressed people and the foundations of democracy and principles of it around the world, what is your experience with the legacy of nelson mandela? >> he really was put away. robben island was really ban issuing him from south africa. i was down there teaching busines

should compel us to action. >> president obama did not introduce any new policies, but he did reiterate his strong support for raising the federal minimum wage, which stands at a paltry $7.25 an hour. >> there are fast food workers and airport workers and retail sales assistants who work their tails off and are still living at or barely above poverty. that's why it's well past the time to raise a minimum wage that in real terms right now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. if you work hard, you should be able to support a family. >> polls consistently show that the economy remains the single biggest concern for americans, and now more than ever the concept of a living wage seems to be gaining ground. adjusted for inflation, today's federal minimum wage is a full $3.50 less than the minimum wage of 1968, which stood at $10.60 an hour. for the past month, senate democrats have been working to pass a measure to raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour, a plan the white house has now endorsed. already this year, five states have passed measures to raise the minimum wage, som

thoughts on. >> i'm reminded -- when i heard the news i was reminded in august 2006, i had the opportunity on a trip through africa with then senator obama. we spent half a day on robben island where nelson mandela spent 18 years of his life in a cell. i remember walking into that cell. i remember walking around the grounds. i remember going to the limestone quarries where they were made to basically crush rock to pass the time. i was trying to explain to my 10-year-old who was watching on tv that this person nelson mandela had died. walking my son through what nelson mandela had gone through. i thought, you know, hopefully what it teaches everybody is to have the ability -- if nelson mandela could put aside three decades or more of hostility, of violence, of just what he had to go through and what the people of south africa had to go through just to be treated remotely equally, if he can do that, can't we in our either every day lives or also in the political discussions we have have a little bit more agreeability and a little bit less personal agreeability as we go about doin

can't negotiate. read the brilliant new book by jacqueline jones, "a dreadful deceit" to see how the transformation of race from the beginning of republic down to obama's presidency for how we can at least address some of the issues. >> it says minority reports. look, if the republican party does not go back to the hard truths that were in the first 12 pages of the gop autopsy, the republican party will be a minority party. what they are doing with african-americans, they have reenergized the african-american base for democrats. by not doing anything on comprehensive immigration reform, which is the big hall mark of the autopsy, they have turned off, generally speaking, latino voters to the republican party. if you look at some of the polls that came out before i believe latino voices did a poll that showed while folks would vote democratic, if you asked them if they were liberal or conservative latino were mostly conservative. republicans were leaving votes on the table. talking african-americans and latinos at the moment. you could add women, you could add young people, lesbian
